this deeply as a former central intelligence officer, they're getting a lot of criticism on this. >> america is not large enough to handle this problem. what we need to develop in the united states is a directive of strategic services. socom in the military or something like that needs to be given expanded authorities, something the cia has in the realm of co vert action. let the covert action be done by this new organization. mccain wanted to create a dss. that was part of his campaign platform. a director of strategic performances, i've written about that as well. we have to do that in this fight if we want to win. >> can't the special forces in the pentagon do a lot of that? can't they carry a lot of this covert activity? i thought they were already going after these al qaeda guys. >> special forces is designed to do two things. it works with indigenous sources and also works with task. it doesn't do the things i'm talking about. i'm talking about an expanded military organization that will spot sources and do operations at the same time. special forces doesn't do that. they don't do that
